Corruption defeats the very purpose of education. In a corrupt education system, students don't acquire the skills and knowledge that would enable them to contribute meaningfully to their country's economy and society. They learn from a young age that a lack of integrity is an acceptable way of life, allowing these values to become the norm throughout society.
